Correct Answer - Option 2 : 3036

Given:

 Bank Candidates Appearing % of Candidates Qualifying I 2200 26 J 3000 17

Calculation:

 Bank Candidates Appearing % of Candidates Qualifying Number of candidates who qualified Number of candidates who did not qualify I 2200 26 2200 × 26% = 572 2200 - 572 = 1628 J 3000 17 3000 × 17% = 510 3000 - 510 = 2490

Number of candidates who did not qualify in banks I and J together = 1628 + 2490 = 4118
Number of candidates who qualified in banks I and J together = 572 + 510 = 1082

Required difference = 4118 - 1082 = 3036

∴ Required difference is 3036.
